Flames Kill Hogs At White Oak Sow Farm

A Cooper Farms com­plex went up in flames on Sun­day, leav­ing hun­dreds of ani­mals dead. It hap­pened at the White Oak Sow Farm on Pauld­ing County Road 165. The fire was reported early Sun­day morn­ing, and when fire­fight­ers got there, they were able to con­tain it to one of the two barns, which housed 380 sows and their off­spring. All were killed. The other barn was not affected. It held 2,200 more sows, who were saved. As of today, the exact cause of that fire is still unknown, and the inves­ti­ga­tion into the cause is still underway.
